Thank you, Cascade Caregivers and CHI

Thank you for your help through a trying time.

The family of Dick Yackey would like to thank Karen Bertrand, Nurse Chris and all the caregivers at Cascade Caregivers for their wonderful care of Dick over the past two years. Thank you for welcoming us into your family there and for all that you do caring for your residents and their families.

During that time, we were also blessed by the care and support provided by the CHI Franciscan Hospice team, especially Nurse Karen and Julie. Thank you! Dr. Jane Houtz and her staff have been such a great help and support to our family for many years and we thank you all very much.

We received such kind and compassionate assistance from the team at Weeks’ Funeral Home. We thank you all so very much, especially Riley, Karen, Miles, and Brenda.

Many thanks to all of our friends, family and neighbors for all your kindness, love and expressions of sympathy. We are so grateful.

Ruthie Yackey and family
